Course Description:

This course is based upon material published by SAMHSA and is part of their latest Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP). 

 

This course material describes specific issues facing men that can affect all elements of the treatment process, including the decision to seek treatment in the first place. Behavioral health counselors can anticipate barriers and better engage men in treatment by being aware of factors that influence why men abuse substances, which substances they choose, and the behavioral, social, and situational issues they may confront. The content begins by addressing co-occurring disorders—a major issue in the treatment of men—and goes on to examine social, behavioral, family, spiritual, and situational issues.

 

This course on the specific behavioral health issues in men was initially written for use in substance abuse treatment but contains information that is applicable to other clinical populations of men.  It is designed for substance abuse counselors, social workers, psychologists, nurses, and professional counselors who do clinical work.  This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of the specific behavioral health issues in men.  It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require clinical continuing education courses for license renewal.  

 

The course is based on a SAMHSA TIP and presents the collaborative efforts of some of the leaders in the field in both areas of research and treatment.  It has been reviewed by both a panel of subject matter experts and field reviewers and as such presents state of the art information for best practices.

 

Authors:  SAMHSA
